From the hostess to the server, no sense of what a restaurant should be. The hostess pointed to the table and told us to walk around the bar to the table !! The server did not know much about their own menu.
Guacamole was the probably the worst seasoned tasteless guacamole I have ever had ( except for the very pungent onions.).
Don’t understand how they are still open

Cute overall in atmosphere. Food was pretty bland. Service was slow. Pricing on the high side for what you get. The bowl was the best on menu that we tried.

We had a lovely quick meal at Puesto. We were going to the movies at Veranda Lux next door on a Tuesday evening and decided to book a table at Puesto for Taco Tuesday. We ordered some tacos which came in minutes and were delicious. I especially liked the carnitas taco. My spouse had the mushroom and very much liked it. A great place for a quick meal before a show. Highly recommended.

Pre-COVID, Puesto was THE restaurant at Veranda. Unfortunately, the menu has been paired down so much - just basically tacos, salads, and bowls, that the price doesn't match the value.

They need to re-establish their clientele with their superb pre-COVID menu, guac at the table, etc.

Come on Puesto... please bounce back!

Good food, very nice ambience and the server was very pleasant and attentive. However the pricing was very expensive for what you got. I did like it, but I would likely not return. $9 for a taco was very excessive. And that was just one.

The cheese on the tacos was a good idea but way too much and salty. The service was not good.

Our food was delicious! I recommend getting the chef salsa bar with chips and the guac with pom seeds and nuts. The tacos are wonderful...especially the breaded fish tacos...yum!! It is very loud though, so having a conversation meant leaning forward sometimes (we were inside though).

We got there on a Friday night at 5. Parking close is not an option, but is available farther out. So you have to walk a ways. We've been before and I think this time they have improved on food and service. That have a nice patio for outdoor dining. Very pleasant.

The food was OK at best. Nothing remarkable about anything we ordered. Chicharones, street corn, tacos: chicken asada, filet mignon, pastor, and quesadilla for the little one. The corn was the best dish and that can be easily prepared at home. The tacos have burnt cheese around the meat. The meat was saused in it's juices, but was in fact dry and tough to chew. We won't be going back.

A night without the kiddos turned out to be awesome at Puesto! Miranda was insanely amazing and gave us the most awesome service for being occupied by what seemed like 20 tables and an order system that wasn’t working. All her suggestions were top notch, not just a typical upsell. We will for sure come back soon.

Very busy on the patio on a Tuesday evening. All the food was good but it turns out I'm not a fan of the crispy melted cheese rolled up inside the tortilla style tacos. The cheese overwhelmed the other flavors. I understand that style is gaining popularity in Mexico City and elsewhere but not with me. The shrimp taco I had without the cheese crust was excellent.

The server was unfamiliar the menu and how to order cocktails; which resulted in sending a simple martini back three times. The manager made it right and was friendly about it, however the drinks finally came at the end of our meal. In all my experience dining out I have never seen a line item for two olives billed at $6.00.

The food was OK but not worth the price , my opinion anyway.

The food was excellent with some innovative flavors for the ceviche and the Tamarindo tacos. music level was high, which made it hard to hear my partner indoors.

We come here now just for the food. The service has been pretty atrocious for the last few times we’ve been there. The servers are absolute boneheads and almost act like they check their brain in that fountain out front before they start their job.

we love Puesto at Veranda; we get there several times a year, sometimes just the pair of us and sometimes with friends. all the friends we have introduced to Puesto Concord love it too. our new favorite appetizer is the potato taquitos - crispy and just filling enough. the tacos are always great; the previous visit i tried another entree, the verduras bowl, but that was a mistake! so it was back to tacos for this visit. The quesabirria taco was truly amazing - taco of the year so far! A while back i wasn't fond of the wine offerings; this visit i had two glasses of the house white. Very pleasant indeed, and i can recommend to all those who like to drink white wine with their Mexican cuisine.

If your server is Miles, might as well go look for the manager off the bat or else you’ll be waiting all night to be served.

I have never had a bad meal here. Tried the classic guacamole and it was delicious. Filet taco, carnitas and short rib tacos were all outstanding. There was a hiccup with our order. The server forgot to put in our meal order after bringing our guacamole. Asked about the timing to get our tacos after seeing other tables get there food and finish. Manager, Althea, came out to explain, offered another round of cocktails and compted our lunch! We were not expecting that but she insisted!!

Great meal and a great response to a server mistake.

We were pleasantly surprised that the tacos were delicious, service a bit slow, but attentive when asked for. The sommelier was very professional. Prices were a bit high, but we plan on coming back on Taco Tuesday.

Beautifully decorated. Organized. They do a few things and do them well. Chicken asada taco, carnitas taco, wow. Chips and salsa- tons of chips just a very small amount of salsa with giant pieces of onion. Weird but delicious.
Recommend!

We were initially sat at a table with broken glass and water under the table, when I brought it to the staffs attention they pointed to a different table and told us “feel free to seat yourself at that table over there”. After we walked ourselves over the same staff member following behind us asked “Is this better for you?”. Our server’s attitude was definitely much more pleasant and changed our minds from leaving. The food is always great but I might wait to return until the staff has more help so they can provide better customer service.

They closed at 9pm and our reservation was at 8pm so they rushed us out of the restaurant around 9:15. Didn’t feel very relaxing and enjoyable.

Wonderful food. Nice service. The only negative side is it is WAY too pricey. $9 for 1 taco! And one needs at least 3-4 tacos not to be hungry. The two men in our party had to order 6 each. So, came out to be pricey.
